ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Solar Bears have agreed to terms with forward Ross Olsson on an ECHL Standard Player Contract for the 2022-23 season.

Olsson, 27, was acquired by the Solar Bears this past season on March 24 via trade after recording 28 points (19g-9a) in 41 games with the Worcester Railers. Following the trade, Olsson notched seven points (2g-5a) in 10 games with the Solar Bears; he finished the year tied for the most power-play goals (10) among Eastern Conference skaters and was the only ECHL player with at least 10 power-play goals and over 100 penalty minutes. Olsson also made his American Hockey League debut during the 2021-22 campaign, appearing in four combined contests with the Bridgeport Islanders and Providence Bruins, registering one assist.

In 122 career ECHL games with Orlando, Worcester, Kansas City and Indy, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound forward has posted totals of 64 points (36g-28a) in 122 matches.

Prior to turning pro, Olsson played for Endicott College, where he was twice named Commonwealth Coast Conference Second Team All-Conference for the Gulls program, logging 134 points (55g-79a) in 94 career games. Olsson ended his tenure at Endicott as the school’s all-time leader in points, assists and power-play goals (23).

Before joining Endicott, the Billerica, Massachusetts native played one year in the USPHL Premier division with the Islanders Hockey Club, collecting 41 points (13g-28a) in 50 games. Additionally, Olsson played in the NAHL with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Springfield Jr. Blues, where he accrued 11 points (4g-7a) in 26 games and helped Fairbanks capture the 2014 Robertson Cup. Olsson also competed in the USHL with the Tri-City Storm, Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and Lincoln Stars, tallying 23 points (7g-16a) in 56 games. Olsson was a selection for the USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in 2012-13.
